Life for most adults is always harried. This is because it has become extremely hard to manage once work and balance their life. Sometimes however, you may notice that you are always late, distracted, forgetful or even overwhelmed by daily responsibilities this may be a sign that you have ADH.
ADHD or attention deficit disorder (ADD) affects many adults. ADH may cause an individual not to have good relationships with others as well as not to progress in their career as they had planned. Moreover, it becomes very important to understand the symptoms of ADH in both adults and children.
ADHD is a condition that is common among children. This is because ADHD symptoms start to show during the early years of a child. what is most worrying is that if as a child, you were found out to be having this condition, even as an adult it may still be there. However, you can still be affected by ADHD even if you have not been diagnosed with the condition as a child. There were so many cases when ADHD was unrecognized in many children.
We cannot ignore the fact that in the past we did not have as much information as we have today about the condition. In the past therefore, instead of picking out ADHD symptoms from children exhibiting them, most parents labeled such children as trouble makers, dim witted and slakers.
Some Common ADHD Symptoms:
A patient suffering from this condition is generally not able to concentrate. If you have ADHD, concentration and focus are difficult to achieve. For instance a child or an adult could exhibit such behaviours like being bored easily, being easily distracted as well as not being able to stick to one activity.
Another symptom is hyperfocusing. You may find it difficult to focus on a task that you find uninteresting but you also have the tendency to be absorbed on an activity that you find stimulating and rewarding. Through hyper focusing, all the chaos and distractions are tuned out by people having this condition. This may work to the patients advantage if all this energy is focused onto positive activities and the opposite is also true. However, if left unchecked, it can affect your relationship with family and friends.
Treatment for Adult ADHD
To deal with personal baggage such as embarrassment and self-esteem issues, individual therapy talks may be very helpful. The problems caused by ADHD in your family and marriage can be dealt with in a therapy that focuses on improving your relationships by educating you and your loved ones about ADHD.
